15 Divers Took Turns Swimming With A Dying Tiger Shark To Save Its Life

April 4, 2014

A dying tiger shark off Australia was nursed back to life by divers who took turns swimming with the shark for one and a half hours in an effort to keep it upright and to get oxygen into its gills. Just as the conservationists were about to give up, the shark kicked, indicating new life.

After a couple more strong kicks, the tiger shark regained its strength and swam off on its own, The Australian and WA Today reported Wednesday.

About 15 divers from a Sea Shepherd vessel and an Animal Amnesty boat began taking turns swimming with the tiger shark in an effort to revive it. Sea Shepherd released this video showing part of the rescue:
